At just 28,50 Euros for four courses, I can understand completely how the Michelin Guide listed this place with a coveted 'Bib' rating. In fact the price we paid for such a wonderful meal was a little embarrassing considering I have in the past paid...More

We had Yesterday a business dinner at this restaurant in Chinon. All went well, nice location, excellent service and quite good food, from high quality oysters up to an excellent soufllè as dessert. I would recommend it to Tripadvisor people.

We are regular visitors to Chinon and a key part of its attraction to us is the quality of a handful of superb places to eat. Alongside Les Annees Trente, L'Occeanic is at the top of our list of favourites. Self consciously contemporary in both...More
